AIXM 5.1.1 Specification

XML Schema (XSD)

Tthe AIXM 5.1.1 XML Schema was automatically generated from the AIXM 5.1.1 UML Model by using a script. The rules for this conversion are the same as for AIXM 5.1. However, the script itself is different because it works with the Sparx EA model (instead of using the previous IBM Rational Rose UML Model). The resulting schema, together with further infromation is available through the link below.

Temporality Concept

An updated version of the Temporality Concept document is issued in relation with AIXM 5.1.1. This version does not introduce any real changes as compared to version 1.0, which was published in relation with the AIXM 5.1 version. Its objective is rather to provide clarifications and to explain better some aspects of the concept. This version also includes an explicit list of temporality consistency rules.
